Electoral areas getting a bargain on the pool

I chuckled at Leo Kasbergen’s protest about a pending hike in the pool levy in Area E.

I have no idea how the CVRD reconciles usage with the levy but then again we are talking about the CVRD chaired by the mayor of North Cowichan.

However, when it comes to what any of the areas of the CVRD pay for the pool levy it still falls far short of what taxpayers in North Cowichan pay to support the same facility.

The areas have no oar in the water when it comes to the capital investment in the pool. That all came from sources outside these areas.

Regardless of what the CVRD board ultimately passes into law, Mr. Kasbergen and the residents of Area E as well as A, B, C, and D are still getting a bargain.
